Selling a business after years of work can be very profitable. Many businesses are created with the hopes that they will one day be acquired by a larger firm. The process of selling your business can be complex, however. Federal and California laws over mergers, acquisitions, negotiations and securities exchanges may be important in the transaction.

How Do I Sell a Business?

Obviously, the initial step in selling a business is to either receive an offer or solicit one. In Fresno County, purchase agents do more than simply find buyers. They also lend advice about which offers are worthwhile to consider. Preparing financial records to comply with California and Federal law is crucial and will help determine the proper value for the rights you are selling. A formal contracts will likely be written to solidify the sales agreement. Careful review of this agreement is crucial so that all concerns voiced during negotiations are accurately presented.

What Will I Give Up in the Business?

Essentially, the sale of a business entails the passing of a right known as ?control?. With control of a business, a party might direct its operations and dispose of its property as it sees fit. Since buyers in Fresno County are typically concerned with acquiring control, they may be willing to allow other rights, such as the right to future earnings, to remain with the seller in exchange for the cheapest price on the right of control. These particularities make negotiations essential, during which each party should use the opportunity to voice their intentions and concerns.
